What a night! Snowfall rates of 1-3″/hour, thunder and lightning and in some spots more than a foot of fresh snow. This is the biggest snowstorm of the season so far.
Totals ranged between 6 and 12″ across much of the area, but the “jackpot” was in northern RI through southern Worcester County and Boston’s western suburbs where amounts climbed to as high as 16″. A little less fell near the coast where snow changed to sleet and rain overnight.
Steady and accumulating snow has come to an end, but lighter snow/rain showers linger through mid/late morning. Expect skies to turn partly sunny this afternoon with breezy northerly winds gusting 20-30mph.

Very cold air will settle in tonight adn black ice is a concern. As temperatures drop, any damp pavement will freeze.
Well-below normal temperatures are expected for the rest of the work week.
